    Coding and Billing!

    Is it better to be a Coder or Biller or both!?

    Re: Coding and Billing!

    It depends what you want to be. They are basically two different things.

    They are two different things but they work together and you can branch into different areas of this field.

    Re: Coding and Billing!

    In my opinion, it's not better or worse to be either one, but I think that being both a biller and a coder would be very helpful to you. Even though they are two different jobs, there are many things that are similar; either way, you need to know your medical terminology and anatomy of the body (that way you understand what is being coded for/billed for). Even if you decide to just be a biller, you still have to understand how to code and how it works because if you are denying a claim, you need to know what that code is for and why is needs to be denied. Therefore, since you already have to learn how to code, you might as well become both a biller and a coder. If you do not wish to become both, then you need to know the differences of both jobs and the requirements.

     Hope this is helpful!

    I think that it is better to be a biller and a coder because they go hand in hand and if an employer sees that you are certified in both areas they will probably chose you over someone who is only a biller or only a coder.

    I believe personally that it is best to become a coder. But I believe that is a personal preference with what makes you feel comfortable or what it you feel best doing.

    It depends on the person honestly. You should research more both and see which one best fits you. In a personal point of view I decided to go to medical billing because I like to work with money and I like to have more responsibility on my plate. I also just recently researched that medical billing pays more that medical coding.

    Re: Coding and Billing!

    I haven't gotten that far to know what billing is all about or how it works and what not, but coding so far is interesting. Once you get the basics down and understand what it is you're doing it's sort of fun. I really like so far.

    Re: Coding and Billing!

    Coding is better for me because I'm getting to understand it and it seems a lot easier especially having to use the book to look up the codes.

    Re: Coding and Billing!

    It all depends on you and what you like doing best. In my opinion, having knowledge in both fields will make you a greater asset to a company.

    Re: Coding and Billing!

    In my opinion, having experience with both, I personally enjoy more coding. I enjoy looking and reading the patients records to code. I have learned new things such as, vocabulary, diagnosis, etc. Once I have the codes I need, I than bill them. It’s good to have experience with both because you are a better asset to the company. Hope this helps! Good luck!

    Re: Coding and Billing!

    I think a combination of medical biller and coder is good as it helps in better understanding of medical billing and coding
